In The Court of The Crimson King Explained
Progressive rock has had more of an influence over my musical life than anything else. As much as I pride myself on my broad music taste, I’d be lying if I didn’t say my youth was primarily filled with progressive rock bands. King Crimson has been one of my favorite progressive rock groups, with the band’s debut In The Court of The Crimson King, frequently regarded as the first prog-rock album ever.
Even with it being over 50 years since its first release, In The Court of The Crimson King is an excellent record that’s a worthwhile experience for any music fanatic. From a musical standpoint, the band combined the blues influences that rock music was founded upon with elements of jazz, classical, and symphonic music, causing it to develop into what we know as progressive rock.
